Never Truly Abandoned

Seeing each other through faded glass. Hearing each other’s thoughts and feelings but only in our heads. Until nothing is left, but air and silence. Your absence is like death.

 Two lonely souls circle each other
like Koi fish in a pond.
Are they friends?
Are they lovers?
Are they partners?
They are none.
 
Gravity slightly bends these lines
from true meaning to intent,
from the choices we share,
to the force of will we make.
Our souls move like marbles over these ripples.
Once in proximity, they collide.
Bending and breaking the space between
our hearts and our hands.
Seeing each other through faded glass.
Hearing each other’s thoughts and feelings
but only in our heads.
Until nothing is left, but air and silence.
Your absence is like death.
 
But...
whatever road you travel, whatever path you take.
Wherever you are going, whomever you love and heartbreak.
Your stardust particles have become part of mine.
You are here with me by my side.
Between the bent fabric of our essence,
between the meeting of two minds.
Etched and written down loosely,
we are as one. Together.
Always and never,
trapped in our human existence
within the fabric of time.
